Noodlelegs presents: OSTEOFIT OUTDOORS!

  • Osteofit classes are held 2x a week 
  • The duration of an Osteofit class is one hour
  • Noodlelegs’ Osteofit classes run for  8 (sometimes 10) weeks
  • Osteofit is a progressive class, with the level of exercises and games progressing each week (thus, it is not a drop-in class)

2 levels of Osteofit:

Osteofit 1 (entry level):

  • TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS 1:00pm – 2:00pm NEW DATES: MAY 4 – JULY 8 /2021
  • 8+ weeks; 16 classes; $10/class = $160 (tax included)
  • locations: outdoors at different parks around Vernon
  • for people who wish to have a gradual introduction or return to exercise
  • good for those with Osteoporosis, lack of stamina, other medical issues that “slow” us down a bit (please contact us and we can chat about your needs)
  • all exercises can be done from a chair or options are given from a standing position
  • non-impact, gentle strengthening exercises that focus on fall prevention, balance, agility and coordination
  • with Covid, we use our own exercise bands (available for purchase in class if you need one)

  • for people who are currently somewhat active (gardening, golfing, walking 40min per day, etc.), and is a safe program for those with Osteoporosis/Osteopoenia.
  • non-impact, gentle strengthening exercises that focus on fall prevention, balance, agility and coordination, but the exercises and games are a little more advanced than Osteofit 1 
  • chairs are provided, but we encourage exercising from standing position as much as possible and in time, we may advance to the more difficult floor exercises
  • each participant needs to complete the required forms, and sometimes their doctor needs to sign a form. See required forms.

Join us! We enjoy learning and laughing together!
